Timber Species – Spotted Gum
Spotted Gum (Eucalyptus maculata)

The word “spotted” refers to the soft mottled colour caused by weathering of the outer tree as it sheds elliptical strips of bark. This colour varies from pale greybrowns and soft creams to a rich chocolate brown. A very tough timber, its frequent wavy grain can produce an attractive and highly valued fiddleback effect.

The Janka rating is the hardness level given to each species. The higher the number, the greater the hardness.

The natural colour variation within a timber species is normal and one of its most appealing attributes. The species samples shown here are indicative only and do not necessarily show the colour variation that can be naturally found in each species. It is recommended that large samples of the species be viewed in a timber flooring showroom when deciding on the species for a new timber floor.
